Photo of the Day (5-27-09)

This gorgeous building is in the walled-city of Intramuros, a section of Manila, Philippines. The city, built by the Spaniards on the southern bank of the Pasig River in the 16th century is Manila’s oldest district. I love the tone and the way the angle that wetboxer chose in order to show off the intricate details of the architecture. It’s buildings like this one that draws me to travel. Not the only thing, but one thing. Like nature, buildings that offer visual stimulation and intrigue also capture the world’s wonder. But, I’m fond of cities so perhaps that’s why I feel this way.

If you’ve captured some of the world’s wonders with your camera, send your shots our way at Gadling’s Flickr photo pool. One might be chosen as a Photo of the Day.
